This is also our thinking at the moment; as soon as you get away from
a very small number of basic operations, you get immersed in the
technicalities of what tags are appropriate (and those rules also
change over time!).  Thus we're very much intending to start small and
only expand where there's value in doing so.

This is probably the next step after the initial two tasks; allowing
people to flag up local businesses and amenities (as points, rather
than areas).
